LeAnn Rimes insists she’s not an evil stepmom

At the beginning of LeAnn Rimes’ marriage to Eddie Cibrian, it seemed like every day there were countless stories in the media about LeAnn’s very public arguments and Twitter wars with Eddie’s ex, Brandi Glanville. Of those stories, it seemed a very large part of them involved Eddie’s children, Mason and Jake. Skip ahead four years and things finally seem to have calmed down (or people are just not paying as much attention). Now LeAnn is speaking up about misconceptions involved in being a stepmom.

“I ignore everything that (Brandi) puts up on Twitter,” LeAnn told Britain’s Closer magazine (comments via xpose.ie). “This is real life and it’s not about Twitter or a reality show. This is our life and I take being a stepmom seriously. I love the boys like they’re my own and they live with us half the time.

“There is a sad stigma when it comes to stepmoms and there is kind of this ‘wicked stepmom’ tag. There is no handbook. What it comes down to is that the kids are loved and cared for.”

As a stepmom myself, I never came across a real stigma involved, but it definitely was difficult to find the right balance of wanting to be involved and being too involved in someone else’s children’s lives. Hopefully LeAnn has found the right balance.

    Why try to start another Twitter war? Just a couple months ago Brandi asked people to not tweet negativity about you or Eddie and stated the boys loved you and that was the important thing. So now you want to make a problem where there isn’t on one why?!?

      She is so full of herself thats why. She thinks being cocky is cute well Leann this is real world and sometimes being a mature adult means to know when to shut your mouth. Brandi is the mother and will be in Eddies and his childrens life thats a fact. you however have no clue of parenting my suggestion would be clam up until you experience true family for yourself until then your still just the step.
